Jardine Water PlanJardine Water Purification Plant is the largest of its kind in the world. The plants obtains and clean water for the entire city of Chigaco, it processes about 3 billion litres a day.
This is only half the capacity of what the plant is capable of. When running on full capacity, the plant can provide over 6 billion litres of clean water a day.

The water is taken from the great lakes and purifies it in a 7 hours process. There are a number of steps in this process that have been changed a lot over the years to make it more efficient. The process includes adding several chemicals in turn which each serves a different purpose such as killing bacteria and removing microorganism.


Lake BalhashKazakhstanian lake; “Lake Balkhash” I heavily polluted and am virtually disappearing. Due to heavy overfishing, agricultural pollution and the bad connection between China and Kazakhstan, Central Asia’s largest lake is in danger of drying out completely.

Worrying for the lake are the major rivers that runs through from China. The river Lli has become a heavy source of water for every one along it, both as drinking water and for industrial use. This water consumption results in a decrease of water being feed to the lake, resulting in low water levels and less fresh water.


Livestock OperationsLivestock operations are among the sources contributing to agricultural pollution. Contaminations from fertilizers and over use of other compounds to increase growth, travels through the earth and gets carried out into rivers and lakes when it’s raining.

Reports show that livestock operations are among the biggest contributors to the increase in climate change. Livestock operations are responsible for over 60 percent of all the acid rain and 15 out of the 24 vast global ecosystems that are in decline can blame livestock.
